No, that's not what you said. In the text quoted above you clearly
state:

	"Stratum 16 is not a 'stratum', it is a flag saying
	this server is not synchronized!!!"

Stratum 16 is one of the 16 valid strata that an ntpd can operate at.
It so happens that this particular stratum indicates an unsynchronized
state (or that an ntpd is synchronized to a S15 time source).
